yellow candy meltsI used Wilton brand for all 3 colors
squeeze bottles or similar method to get the colored chocolate in place
wax paper or a silicone baking mat
In a small pot over low heat on the stove, combine the the yellow candy melts and about 1 tbsp of vegetable shortening. Stir occasionally until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Repeat these steps with the white and orange candy melts.
While the chocolate is melting set up your decoration station. Place a baking sheet (or multiple) on the counter, line those with wax paper or a silicone baking mat. Then set up the candy corn pretzel outlines. You’ll use 2 regular pretzels for the sides and a broken pretzel for the bottom.
Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, transfer each color to a squeeze bottle or other similar device. Add the chocolate to the outline, I found it easiest to start with yellow, then orange and white.
Be sure that the chocolate goes up the sides of the pretzels a bit to ensure that the pretzels won’t fall off after they harden. You can use a toothpick to help get the lines straight and to smooth out any chocolate bumps. Once they are all filled in, you could let them harden on the counter or place the baking sheet in the fridge to speed up the process.
After they harden carefully remove the candy corn pretzels from the wax paper. Store leftovers in an air tight container.
You will need less white candy melts then you will need yellow or orange. You don't need to melt the entire bag of candy melts at one time, unless you plan to make quite a few candy corn pretzels. Estimate the amount of candy melts you'll need - but I would suggest melting half of the orange and yellow candy melts to begin with.
